Not a Gentleman by Tintinnabula reviews
An alternate imagining of Mrs. Gaskell's story, assuming Margaret had been hurt more seriously on the day of the riot. Intertwines elements of both the book and the BBC series, but focuses less on angst and more on the relationship of John and Margaret. Disclaimer: I do not own these characters, but am only presuming to borrow them for a while.

Beach Bashes and Banter by teatat reviews
The only downside to Lizi's summer job, at the shore, is the restaurant's snobby owner. Maybe if Darcy had read Pride and Prejudice, he wouldn't be making the same mistakes as his namesake. Then again, Lizi has read it and still fails to consider there may be more to Darcy than her first impression. Nor does she recognize his growing attraction to her.

As Time Goes By by NeverIsTheEternal reviews
"It's still the same old story, a fight for love and glory, a case of do or die. The world will always welcome lovers as time goes by" - Herman Hupfeld. This is a continuation of the novel with light 2004 movie influences. I do not own the lyrics to As Time Goes By or the world and characters of Elizabeth Gaskell.

Gentle Violence and Delicious Silence by NeverIsTheEternal reviews
It took a lie to make Margaret Hale realize the truth. It took admitting the truth to expose her weakness, and overcoming her weakness to find the strength to heal. Movie inspired thanks to a rainy day off but with strong notes of the book added. CHAPTER 2 SPELLING ERRORS FIXED! Apologies for uploading the unedited doc.

An earlier happy ending by BelaSYD reviews
There were many opportunities for Margaret Hale and John Thornton to discover their love for each other sooner than they did. At CHAPTER XL - OUT OF TUNE the happy ending was near... if Mr. Hale paid more attention to Margaret.

Touch Has A Memory by nrink nrink reviews
Did Mr Thornton ever get his gloves back after that disastrous proposal? This is my take on it! The story is loosely based on the BBC TV series, and the first of a few short chapters. I would be grateful for comments, as this is my first N&S fic. Thanks!
